California Home Warranty

For most people, their home is the most valuable asset they own. For this reason, making sure that it is protected should be a top priority for every Californian.

While homeowners insurance provides some security, it doesn’t protect your home systems or appliances when they break. These items can often cost thousands of dollars to repair or replace. Luckily, with a California home warranty plan from First American, you can rest assured that your appliances and home systems and will be covered and protected.

California Home Warranties and You

The main reason why millions of people opt for the services of home warranty companies in California is the added level of security they can offer. Home systems and appliances can fail at any time, and dealing with a broken air conditioning unit in the middle of a scorching summer is not something you want.

What’s more, expenses for repairing or replacing systems and appliances can range from a few hundred to many thousands of dollars, which can put a strain on your wallet and cause countless inconveniences.

On the other hand, when you work with one of the top rated California home warranty companies, First American Home Warranty, you can take advantage of our large network of contractors and get your problem solved quickly. You also have peace of mind knowing that your budget is protected when a covered item breaks. In most cases all you may pay is a low, set service fee for the visit.

Our plans cover most of the main appliances and home systems that you might have and we don’t require a home inspection or have a limit for the age of your equipment. You can be sure that we can offer a plan that’s right for your situation.

I have been with First American Home Warranty since I bought my house 4 years ago. My house was not new and had some problems with my toilets and dishwasher, microwave, etc. You have always made sure I received your services in a timely manner. You have helped me out and I have saved probably thousands of dollars if I did not have your coverage. THANK YOU.
